This is certainly heaven in a scoop, most welcome in this hot, crazy weather.   I can assure you that no one can muster the willpower to stop at  savouring just one scoop of this gooey, green tea flavoured ice cream!










 Recipe for Green Tea Ice Cream

    Ingredients

    • 3/4 cup milk
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 5 Tbsp sugar
    • 3/4 cup whipping cream
    • 1 Tbsp matcha/green tea powder
    • 3 Tbsp hot green tea OR water
    • A pinch of salt
    Method
    1. Mix hot green tea with matcha powder, set aside.
    2. Whisk egg yolks with sugar, till pale and light.
    3. In a saucepan, whisk cream and milk till smooth.  Cook on low heat till milk just begins to foam up.  Remove from heat.
    4. Pour milk mixture slowly into the egg mixture, stirring continuously so as not to cook the eggs.  Stir in the green tea paste, mix well.
    5. Pour mixture back into the saucepan, cook on low heat stirring with a wooden spoon till mixture can coat the back of the wooden spoon.  (Test by drawing a line through the middle of the custard).
    6. Immediately remove from heat, stir for a few minutes so as not to overcook.
    7. Cover with cling wrap, let cool to room temperature, refrigerate overnight.
    8. Churn for 30 mins., in the ice cream maker or according to the instructions of your ice cream maker.

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.
